Democrats have lost their way

June 10, 2014 

I totally agree with BND letter writer Bob Dagner. This Democratic Party, which I have belonged to all my life, has lost its way. This state is a disaster. Nothing gets decided; the few honest leaders have resigned.

Legislators cannot or will not get their act together and House Speaker Mike Madigan thinks he is king.

My wife and I will not vote for any of these useless and incompetent people and we are seriously going to move to another state when we decide on one.

I used to be proud of Illinois, but these so-called leaders give us nothing to be proud of. What a shame.
